Products Used

Our beauty courses offer the opportunity to train in the technical aspects of application of the materials required for your chosen course, without losing valuable practical time trying to sell you products. We show you how to effectively use the product to achieve fantastic results, that will build your client list and your business.

Our certification is not brand specific. In some cases you insurance may be invalid if you train with a branded product detailed on your training certificate and you then change to another brand. This also allows us to offer our training courses at a lower cost allowing you to spend what is right for you on the necessary products rather than buying unnecessary and costly equipment.

Some of the beauty courses have kits available to buy on the day enabling you to continue to build your confidence and skills immediately upon your return home.

Your tutor will advise you if a kit is available for your course, when confirming your booking. Some kits may require payment in advance and other may be available for purchase on the training day.

Manicure and Pedicure - Practitioner Accredited Diploma Course

I booked with Esther for two courses and thought she was an excellent tutor, very friendly and helpful throughout the whole day. She explained everything very well and put me at ease and was constantly on hand if needed.Really good atmosphere in the class and very relaxed. The venue was great and keeping the class so small meant that everyone got the maximum attention they needed. Highly recommended. Great tutor and venue The courses are accredited.
